Seeing as this is strawberry season, I have been buying packs of strawberries. However, the strawberries usually go bad before I can eat them all. Boo. If you’re like me, then this recipe is good for the day you see your strawberries about to go bad.
I found this recipe in a magazine called Edible Dallas & Fort Worth and have been wanting to try it.
This morning, I woke up early and instead of making my usual frozen waffles, oatmeal, eggs, or cereal (I am a gourmet chef after all), I decided to make these since I had strawberries on their last days. The recipe wasn’t too complicated and they turned out great! Ask Ryan, he looked like he quite enjoyed them. Side note- I never said these were healthy.
